 I know facebook doesn't work exactly like the card, but since when do fluxx cards not involve creative license?  I don't agree with the "may" wording suggestion.  I'm probably missing something here, but if the card read "may," I don't see any reason the player would choose to do so.  After all, there isn't anything in the rules that strictly prohibits you from showing your draws to the other players, but it just isn't intentionally done because you usually don't want the others to know what cards you have.   As the game is without these keepers, you already "may" reveal your draws to other players.  In other words "may" would make the card redundant to the way the game is played without the card; everyone making their draws and keeping them private.  It should definitely read "must".

I think these would work better as 'may' instead of 'must', or even one of them not having any ability.
I myself don't post everything on FB, otherwise all my friends would delete me.
